WHO REALLY IS
This is not surprising since He’s the most famous person in all of human history. More songs have been sung to Him, artwork created of Him, and books written about Him than anyone who has ever lived. Even our calendar is based off his life, dividing time before and after Him. Naturally, someone this important will have fans and foes. A lot of people have an idea of who Jesus is. They may get this idea from TV or movies, maybe from past church experience and Sunday School felt boards, from history books, or maybe from just hearsay.
But just because we have ideas of who Jesus is doesn’t mean we actually know Jesus.
At Gateway, we’re all about Jesus– and the only way to get to know Jesus is to understand what the Bible says about Him, which includes what He said about himself. Jesus is a good friend. We’ve all been a bad friend at some point.
Maybe we’ve taken advantage of friends or been short with them or simply not been there when needed. And we’ve probably experienced that as well. But Jesus is a good friend. In fact, He’s a perfect friend. And even when we’re horrible friends to Him, He’s always a good friend to us. Jesus is such a good friend and we’re such bad friends, that He knew the only way to save our friendship was to die for our sins- and He did so willingly.
